@CrazyDef I encountered issues with some VirtualBox or VMWare Worksstation Player having trouble to virtualise correctly GPU and hardware acceleration, resulting in crashes, freezes or slow interaction.
HyperV is not active on my office workstations.
@webaschtl hi, considering your point " I want to have the options of Acrobat e.g. for navigating in the document or choosing the zoom level " , it seems the advice on here https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/31909/could-the-internal-pdf-viewer-be-improved/5, to use plug-ins of alternative and better internal pdf viewers like https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf-reader/ieepebpjnkhaiioojkepfniodjmjjihl; or https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf-viewer/oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm, seems to work for me.
Here is how to fix the issue :
Go to AVG Menu -> SETTINGS
Click on SEARCH and type geek:area
Click on the hint to acceed aditional parameters
Scroll down to AVG email agent
Uncheck Scan SSL connections
If it still does not work, you may also check/change SSL ports (IMAP, SMPT) below to the good ones.
Thanx for the fast response!
Ok, i will try to get some more info from AVAST how they are going to deal with this problem.
I like (trust) Vivaldi to much to switch back to something "less"
If i get some usefull info, i will post it here.
Have a nice day.

The project is completed now, but here is my mods folder if you were still interested. Sorry for the late reply.
I highlight one, then press my mouse button to activate my macro which clicks the Google button in the toolbar, then clicks the links to download the mod. I'm surprised how well it worked, actually, but with uBlock Origin blocking a lot of content, links lined up nicely. I think I had to re-download 2 just because their names were so short, but it was trivial to open the Trashcan menu and see which links didn't start with "Downloading..."
Anyway, thanks for the help. 🙂
Cannot say anything about quality of these.
Block list: https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts
DNS: https://www.geckoandfly.com/27285/free-public-dns-servers/ (several of them mention "family")
I'd probably try the block list first; DNS can be quite sensible from a privacy stance.
I guess that you can add the block list via vivaldi://settings/privacy/ -> Manage Sources -> Ad Blocking Sources -> the link of the filter you want to use to the "Raw Host" or "Non GitHub mirror"
@sergic25 Adding this in case you didn't know - on Windows, you can adjust the double click speed in Mouse settings. It doesn't require running any 3rd-party apps (but will affect all programs running on your computer). 🙂
Following the same color principle you can :
1.- SELECT A TAB ON HOVER: Color the entire tab on hover :
2.- SELECT A LINK ON HOVER :Color the links new and visited:
So with this AHK script you obtain ON HOVER :
1.- CLOSE TAB
2.- CLOSE TAB STACK
3.- SELECT TAB
4.- SELECT LINKS
color1 := "0x3281FF", color2 := "0x2281FF", ; Close Tab stack
color3 := "0x820004", color4 := "0x830000", ; Close Tabs
color5 := "0xa3a3a3", ; Select tabs
color6 := "0x00ff00", color7 := "0x3f81ea", ; Links new and visited
; The tabs of first level has a little bit different close color from the second level, so you need 2 colors
CoordMode, Pixel, Screen
if WinActive("ahk_exe vivaldi.exe")
MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY
PixelGetColor, thisColor, MouseX, MouseY, RGB
PixelGetColor, thisColor2, MouseX, MouseY, RGB ; You need to hover for 250 milliseconds
If ((thisColor2 = color1) or(thisColor2 = color2)) and (thisColor = thisColor2) and (MouseY < 150)
Send !k ; Close Tab stack
If ((thisColor2 = color3) or (thisColor2 = color4)) and (thisColor = thisColor2) and (MouseY < 150)
Send !o ; Close Tabs
If (thisColor2 = color5) and (thisColor = thisColor2) and (MouseY < 150)
Click ; Select Tabs
If ((thisColor2 = color6) or (thisColor2 = color7)) and (thisColor = thisColor2)
Click ; Select links
@benfred What mouse is it? Some have control software that can change the actions of buttons depending on the program that is focused.
A basic mouse without that sort of option might require using something like AutoHotKey to remap the keycodes of the mouse because I don't think Vivaldi has that built in.
